COLOP awarded with JULIUS-Award – the award of the Wirtschaftsbund (Business Association) for quality companies in Upper Austria

Regionality, further education, innovations, tradition - all of these are emphasised by the JULIUS-Award of the Upper Austrian Business Association. Only companies that draw attention to themselves in a special way are honoured with this award. On 6th September, the award was officially presented to our management.

“We are very proud to have received this award and the associated recognition for our company", says Christoph Skopek, Managing Director of COLOP. The JULIUS-Award was handed over by Harald Plöckinger, chair of the Business Association of the city of Wels, and Alexandra Platzer, candidate for the state parliament.

The JULIUS-Award, named after the founding father of the Business Association Julius Raab, honours Upper Austrian quality businesses, and this year for the first time also innovative traditional companies. As it is these organisations who, with their commitment, lay the foundations for growth, employment and prosperity in Austria.

COLOP was founded in 1981 in Wels, Austria and is one of the world's leading manufacturers of modern stamping and marking solutions with 580 employees worldwide (200 of them in Austria), 130 regularly supplied export markets and an export rate of over 98%.

Today, our company is active in three business areas: in addition to the traditional stamp sector, the electronic-digital sector was added with COLOP Digital and the creative, gift and hobby sector with COLOP Arts & Crafts.

We are known for our high level of innovation in all these areas. The acknowledgement we have received with the JULIUS-Award therefore gives us particular pleasure
